As ECC approaches, more questions keep coming up.
First, it has been established that the “staple Big 4” Capcom games will be at ECC 11 in some capacity. These include Marvel vs Capcom 2, Capcom vs SNK 2 (which WILL be held on the PS2 console), in addition to Third Strike (whose fate will be determined in the other ECC poll) and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.
Also, there is a VERY high probability that both Tekken 5 and Soul Calibur 3 will be at ECC on the PS2 console. I see no reason why we should not have these tournaments, since the organizers of Clash were very receptive to the idea of having Capcom games at their tournament. In addition, Tekken has always gotten decent numbers at past ECCs, and Soul Calibur 3 is a game worthy of competitive tournament play as well.
HOWEVER, there still remains the question of what other events will be held at ECC this year. There are many, many candidates, ranging from old-school Capcom to new-school games, to Mortal Kombat! So, without further ado, I present the official “side games” ECC 11 poll!
Hopefully the results of this thread will help us to determine what games YOU, the gamers, want to see as side-events at ECC11!
DISCLAIMER: By no means does the result of this poll mean that we will only select the #1 voted game for tournament play. If you even want a game that’s not on this list, post and let us know!
ADDENDUM: Unfortunately, due to the release of Guity Gear XX Slash, which has a very high chance of NOT being released in the United States in time for ECC…in addition to a hot debate as to which version of Guilty Gear should be used in tournaments from now on…Guilty Gear will NOT be in any tournament capacity at ECC 11. This does not mean that at some point Guilty Gear will not be open for casual play, but DO NOT expect any Guilty Gear tournaments this year.
Let the voting begin!
